2021 RANGER 1000
Experience the ultimate combination of price and performance with the new Ranger 1000, featuring smoother low-speed drivability and increased agility to create a perfect balance of big-work capability and all-day comfort.
Engineered for Work
With consumer-inspired improvements all round, the Ranger 1000 is designed to be the ultimate workhorse capable of getting the toughest jobs done. The all-new ProStar 1000 single overhead cam engine is optimised to provide more torque at lower RPMs, and there is an all-new Pro-PVTi clutch system to deliver smooth drivability at low speeds and allow users to get the most out of the class-leading 1,134kg towing capacity. TheRanger 1000 offers 30.5cm of ground clearance and 25.4cm of suspension travel on the front and rear to rise above any obstacle, plus a payload capacity of 454kg and a tight turning radius to stay agile in tight spaces. It is equipped with multiple Lock & Ride mounting locations to add key accessories needed for the job at hand.
Designed for Comfort
For the comfort to work and go all day, the Rangerengineering team has designed the Ranger 1000 with rider experience in mind, featuring 12.7cm of entry and exit clearance and padded bench seats. The all-new, one-piece chassis provides a rigid frame for a more comfortable ride. Inside, the cab features a large glove box plus a lower dash bin, driver and passenger under-seat storage and up to eight cup holders. With seamless accessory integration across Ranger Pro Shield cab system components and a pre-wired three-position Polaris Pulse electrical system under the hood, the Ranger1000 enables consumers to ride in comfort all-day long, no matter the conditions.
Built to Last
Ranger is renowned for the longevity of its vehicles, and the Ranger 1000 is no exception. A completely redesigned front end features a heavy-duty steel front bumper and a full-body skid plate, provides more protection from unforgiving terrain. A quick release grille panel adds to the distinct style and is integrated into the front of the Ranger 1000 for easy access to the radiator for service and cleaning, and a new high-capacity, round air filter has been conveniently located for easy access, inspection and maintenance. Longer-lasting, quieter and maintenance-free sealed suspension bushings come standard, and CV guards have been carried forward for additional A-arm protection. The new Pro-PVTi clutching system has been engineered from the ground up with large internal wear components to deliver enhanced drivability, reliability and control. Enhanced durability, protection and ease of maintenance make the Ranger 1000 stronger and tougher, no matter the task.
Available in Sage Green as standard, the Ranger 1000 is also available in a Nordic Pro special edition, featuring a glossy black pearl paint finish complemented by bright Velocity Blue springs, an in-cab heater and cab seal kit fitted as standard along with 12-inch black aluminium wheels and a Polaris PRO Heavy-Duty 2041kg winch for a helping hand in tricky situations.
2021 RANGER XP 1000
Top of the range and built to be the most capable and comfortable Ranger ever, the Ranger XP 1000 also receives notable upgrades for 2021; now featuring a brand-new look with the addition of striking LED headlights to the three-seater model, and new colour options.
Not only do the updated LED lights give the Ranger a more aggressive and premium look, they also deliver 90-percent more output than the traditional halogen lights for improved visibility in low-light conditions, allowing riders to stay outside for longer to get the job done.
The Ranger XP 1000 EPS is available in Matte Navy with 12-inch aluminium wheels – for both three-seater and Crew models – and Polaris Pursuit Camo – for the three-seater only – as well as the new special edition finish – Nordic Pro.

The ABS version of the Ranger XP 1000 EPS is available in Burgundy Metallic.
With its ProStar 1000 double-cam overhead engine, 1134kg towing capacity, 454kg cargo bed capacity, 33cm ground clearance and 27.9cm suspension travel on the front and rear, the Ranger XP 1000 is the top-of-the-range in quality and features. Available on certain models, the three-position engine switch on the dash allows users to switch between work, standard and performance settings to suit their ride, whilst the premium paint finish, 12-inch alloy wheels and huge 27-inch Maxxis tyres make it look bolder and more stylish than ever before.
